    HUMRAHI

    This is an organisation for gay and bisexual men based in Delhi. The group was officially started in February 97, with an object of becoming a platform for discussing the needs of Delhi's Gay Community. It's objects include creating awareness about issues relevant to us and providing a support system to members of our society. The group works closely with the Naz Foundation, a premier sexual health NGO.

    The Humrahi Group meets every Saturday from 7.00 to 8.30 p.m. at D-45 Gulmohar Park, New Delhi. The meetings provide a congenial atmosphere to discuss problems relevant to us like marriage pressures and social/cultural stigma and also provides a support system for those who need it. It also helps in networking and meeting like-minded people. Total confidentiality and respect for privacy is guaranteed and expected. For gay men looking to meet other gay men, this is a great way to interact.

    The group also runs a telephone counselling service on Mondays and Thursdays from 7.00 to 9.00 p.m. on phone numbers 2685-1970 and 2685-1971 for gay and confused men. Issues relating to homosexuality,  discussed in total anonymity with trained counsellors in Hindi or English.

    Humsafar can be contacted on: 022- 26673800. Or, email them on qs_humsafar@hotmail.co

    SANGINI

    Sangini was set up in 1997 under the umbrella of The Naz Foundation (India) Trust and provides information, counselling, support, help and advice, through operating a telephone help line service, for lesbians and women exploring their sexuality. It also welcomes calls from others affected by this; friends, family, partners etc. and other organizations seeking advice in this area. In addition, weekly meetings are organized for women who wish to meet in a group and discuss lesbian issues, share their experiences and talk openly about their sexuality in a supportive space.

    Sangini help line operates on Tuesday evenings only, from 6 to 8pm, (all counselors on the helpline are lesbian or bisexual themselves). The phone numbers are 011-65676450,  2685 1970 and 2685 1971.

    Sangini support meetings are held every Saturday afternoon from 3.00 to 6.00 p.m. and are only open for lesbians, bisexuals and women exploring their sexual orientation. For more information, email Sangini at: info@naz.unv.ernet.in or Sangini97@hotmail.com

    AANCHAL

    Aanchal is the first helpline solely for lesbian and bisexual women in Mumbai, India. The phone number is (022) 370 4709. It has basically arisen because of the complete invisibility that lesbians and bisexual women have had and continue having in the city. Women who are isolated and fearful of others discovering their sexuality now have a safe place to interact with like-minded women. Aanchal means the sheltering folds of a woman's saree. The phone is attended by a counselor on Saturdays between 3pm and 7pm. Confidentiality is assured.

    Notes

    • *This list includes organizations that are LGBT community based organizations or self help initiatives (both registered and non-registered). But it does not include non-community based NGOs that work with LGBT people as only one of their target audiences.

       
    • Target population coding: 'B' = Bisexual; 'G' = Gay; 'L' = Lesbian; 'T' = Transgender. Codes like 'GBT', 'GB' and 'T (male)' imply that the target populations consist of only males. Similarly, 'LBT' or 'LB' imply female target populations only. 'LGBT' implies both male and female populations. 'MSW' = Male sex workers.

       
    • Codes like 'GB', 'GBT' and 'LGBT' do not necessarily mean that the organizations with these codes can be identified as "gay groups". Gay men probably constitute only one of the several sub-groups of MSM these organizations may be working with. This coding therefore is indicative only of the target populations these organizations work with, and not of the "identities" of the organizations per se.

      Note to organisations / groups: All addresses have been taken from various sources such as LGBT resource books, web sites and organisational literature as on 10 jan 2005. If there are changes in address, please write to us with the latest details and aims of the organisation and the links will be updated accordingly.
